This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Troubleshooting Backup - Client
I am using backup client (3.0.0) to backup the repository in Bitbucket.net; the initial backup was done initially in March without problem. However, I ran into an error
$ java -jar bitbucket-backup-client.jar 2016-08-01 11:29:52,489 INFO Initializing 2016-08-01 11:29:53,988 ERROR A backup could not be created com.atlassian.bitbucket.internal.backup.client.BackupException: The Bitbucket version could not be verified; the server returned 404 Not Found. Backup/restore is only supported by Bitbucket 2.7.0 and later. at com.atlassian.bitbucket.internal.backup.client.RestBitbucketService.handleVersionQueryFailure(RestBitbucketService.groovy:359) ~[bitbucket-backup-client.jar:3.0.0] at com.atlassian.bitbucket.internal.backup.client.RestBitbucketService.getVersion(RestBitbucketService.groovy:188) ~[bitbucket-backup-client.jar:3.0.0] ... 9 more frames available in the log file
I checked the backup-config.properities and the bitbucket.baseURL, bitbucket.home are correct; I did not change it since the initial backup in March. The same error shows when running backup client 3.3.0.
Any suggestions ?
The Bitbucket Server Backup Client is only compatible with the self-hosted Bitbucket Server instance (previously known as Stash). More details on the backup client can be found at https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/BitbucketServer/Using+the+Bitbucket+Server+Backup+Client
This backup client will not work with Bitbucket Cloud (hosted at bitbucket.org). More information on backups for Bitbucket Cloud can be found at https://confluence.atlassian.com/pages/viewpage.action?pageId=288658413. A clone of the repository can serve has a backup of the code (but will not preserve pull requests and comments).
